    Welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  WRT your comment about more charcoal and a much hotter fire to get going with low&slow-within reason you can never load too much lump.  For long duration low&slows you can load to the top of the fire ring. 

    Now with speeding along to a low&slow cook temperature-don't get too large a fire initially going or when you throttle down the vents you will be dang near snuffing the fire to stop the temperature rise where you want it.  Many different approaches to establishing a good burning low&slow fire-but once you get the ceramics heated, it take a long time to cool down.  FWIW-

    Actually @DMW's post reminded me something I came across around 6 years ago when looking into to college education for my youngest.  Most private colleges have set up pretty nice need-based scholarship programs.  So if you don't end up with much in the way of assets (spend as you go and enjoy it) when she hits college age you can do quite well.  On the other-hand academic based scholarships are not as prevalent.  FWIW-

    Now that is a pigged out LBGE.  Most eggcellent.  @AlliePeanut-out of curiosity -what was the best pork you have had?
  • Forum offerings and more; Help-Plus or Minus...

    Wondering how the forum feedback to perceived or real cooking/prep issues sort themselves out.  This place will readily respond to any queries for cooking suggestions or help about 24/7/365.  If you request some guidance here and you get same, it would help the poster(s) with some feed-back, plus or minus.   Regardless, the offerings/comments and suggestions will continue as this is about the most user-friendly forum on the web in my limited exposure.  YMMV-
